The purpose of this program is to provide training or assistance to an individual who has the desire to reach specific goals. This can include a variety of activities such as shopping, household care, taking part in community activities, or other daily living skills that the individual needs to become independent. Direct Support Professionals are trained on the needs of the individual in hopes of assisting individuals with disabilities to achieve their own personal goals while in the community. By participating in community wide events and functions individuals with disabilities become more active citizens in the community. CLS services are based on individual needs using a person centered approach. Services occur based on the desired schedule of the individual.
